I’m not understanding the module subtleties yet but yes that does work command line. Other than -add-modules into the runtime are there any special considerations for using it from an application?

I am still wondering for the application embedded runtime exec not finding linked native commands if this is expected not to work or is considered an issue?

Thanks for the command line solution.
